janet napolitano she did not believe the federal government did not believe that the boston incident was tied to a greater plot other than the boston incident. whether it has a bigger plot, in other words, tied to a bigger organization, they wouldn't say. whether it is foreign or domestic, federal officials would not say. as far as anything they've heard chatter wise intelligence wise, before or after, that is the real mystery here. they are not hearing much at all. that is a little bit unique. usually you have terrorist groups that claim responsibility. after the "new york times" new york times square bombing you had al-qaeda claiming right away. you have no one right now. sometimes that happens but it's pretty wear. they are not hearing any chatter. they didn't hear anything before. you heard in that press conference there wasn't a specific threat on a marathon. they had normal threat assessment heading into the race they aren't hearing anything from cellphones and radio traffic afterwards. >> eric: thanks a lot. now, we're going to head back to bill hemmer. we've heard from severa
they are pouring over. janet napolitano, the fbi director, robert muller and nsa director, keith alexander, briefed members of the house and senate agencies this afternoon. in terms of what bostonians are doing, there have been vigils and public events. the largest taking place at boston commons. 8-year-old martin richard was remembered tonight at a vigil in his local parish church. doors were open for official vigils tonight. the st. james in somersville, doors are open. the church in boston proper, st. paul church, there are events at boston university and brandice university. gathering for a vigil for the victims as well as a vigil for the -- itself. the white house announcing today that president obama will travel to boston the day after tomorrow to speak at a service at boston's cathedral of the holy cross. the president branding the attack as an act of terrorism, but officials don't know quote whether it was planned and executed by a terrorist ors, foreign or domestic, or the fact of a malevolent individual. finding out -- that law enforcement is poring over as we speak. what officials are tr
-grown terrorist. we just don't have all the answers right now. >> greta: briefing from homeland security janet napolitano, did she say we're on to somebody? >> i've had briefings with law enforcement, as well. they don't have specific leads at this point. >> this is like a fran sick search and all we have is a bomb. >> i do think it's something is going to come out on this bomb and lead us to where it originated. the other issue we do have a lot of photos. >> greta: we have searched a saudi national. i know because he a saudi national there is a little profiling there. they tackled him and they thought she was suspect. he searched his apartment and he is not a good sign. that is not a good sign. >> that lead washed out. there are other leads. i will say that is why they are asking the public to come forward if they have any information about this. so just like you, i'm very concerned. as you see the people who were killed and injured and maimed and crippled, an eight-year-old boy. it cries out for justice. >> what is curious, secretary napolitano is saying it does not appear to be a coordinate
. what do you expect as this investigation unfolds? >> well, i talked to janet napolitano this afternoon. she told me that there is total cooperation. we have learned a lot -- >> i think you can see it on the stage when the fbi, boston police commissioner came out, the mayor, the governor, it really seems to be there. >> i served on the homeland security committee for seven years and i tell you, we were not ready for 9/11, no one was ready. we are ready now. i think the surveillance cameras, the acuity of everyone that knows they were part of a crime scene is all going to be brought to the floor. i think at the federal, state and local levels. citizens as well. if you are someone that was part of the perpetration of this crime, you should be very worried because i think that everyone is going to be united in using every bit of law enforcement technology to track you down. >> young that washington has a role beyond the president simply saying as he has done, ordering everybody into maximum cooperation and high gear here? >> the president is going to visit here. i think he has that role, a
at this? >> janet napolitano says she things this is not part of a broader movement. >> neil: how would see know that? >> she is privy to a lot of intelligence we don't have. but it's very tough to say. this attack to me had some of the hallmarks of the islamic terror attacks we had multibell bombings, in the bombs we had nails, ball bearings, designed to cause maximum carnage. we don't know who is behind it yet but right now some over hallmarks -- another thing, with the antigovernment extremists. we heard a lot of that yesterday from commentators. you would think they would target a government building, federal building, irs building, government facility, the kind of indiscriminate terror we say yesterday, women and children, an eight-year-old killed, this is hall mark of islamic style attacks which means, these guys follow up and you're talking about no claim of responsibility? that is very interesting. perhaps whoever did it, didn't issue a claim of responsibility because there's more in the works forbid. >> neil: in the case of the oklahoma city bombing, that was done by an america

's interesting, janet napolitano can the department of homeland security chief, neil, says there was a ping when the older brother went to russia. okay. was there a ping when he returned? apparently not. because apparently, after he was there for six months, no one in our intelligence agencies met with this guy to see what he was up to, and look, neil, don't want to bash the fbi. they have done a great job since 9/11. broken up so many plots here on u.s. soil. taken in a lot of islamic terrorists, wannabe islamic terrorists but this is tough. those not have happened, this boston bombing. what they asking him two years ago when the fbi interviewed this older brother in 2011? how was he cleared. holiday was the ft. hood shoot north followed -- shooter not followed up on. there's a pattern of major mistakes leading to people getting killed. >> neil: thank you very much. ken fineberg is speaking and will be the man that disburses the one fun that has millions set aside on the part of businesses, bostonnans and sympathetic americans who provided millions to bostonians, and those visiting who were inj
of this event. "studio b" win shepard starts right now. >> security secretary janet napolitano crossing over the wires in the last minute or so a statement saying that this bombing is not believed to be part of any larger plot. again, from the homeland security secretary, the word we have been hoping to hear for the better part of 24 hours, there is no indication of any kind that this bombing is part of a larger plot of any kind. at the moment we're live near boylston street, a few blocks from the finish line. we're just more than the 2 hours during this program yesterday a terror attack stunned the city in celebration. sources are saying explosioned in the twin blasts were made from pressure cookers. experts say attackers previously used pressurer cookers for bomb in afghanistan in the foiled bombing in times square in 2010. a live look at massachusetts general hospital where we expect a news conference to begin moments from now with updates on the victims. a federal law enforcement source tells fox news that investigators have ruled out that saudi person of interest they were questioning a
. it was a written release by janet napolitano, the obama department of homeland security secretary. she said why obama had decided to issue the reassurance. there are probable no broader attacks, no more anywhere in the u.s. that is reassuring. here in washington, the public is wary, and they dominate what the congress is talking about. >> reporter: big issues like gun control are out of the spotlight. the horrifying attack dominates the americans' attention, but pulls americans together. this is the chicago tribute, solidarity, from one area to another. in pain. citing how bostonians rushed in to help the injured. president obama sent a message of solidarity and defiance. >> you want to know who we are and who america is, how we respond to evil? that is it. selfless selflessly, compassionatly. >> reporter: any time bombs are used, it is an act of terror, he says, the lawmaker got an intel briefing last week. >> there was no evidence at all, no intelligence that seemed to be out there. >> reporter: the top senate republican was critical. >> i think it is safe to say that for many, the complacenc
now on capitol hill homeland security secretary janet napolitano is speaking on reform. let's bring in former pennsylvania congressman patrick murphy and republican strategist danny vargas. good morning to both of you. i think there is no doubt that the bombing has complicated the immigration bill process. rand paul asking to delay the bill until they know more about the facts of the suspects. what is your take? >> i agree with congressman ryan. what happened in boston does emphasize the fact that we need to move forward with our immigration reform debate. part of the debate ought to include ways to modernize the way that law enforcement is able to work with homeland security. our immigration system today is broken. it doesn't meet the needs of our economy and security. we need to move forward with this debate on how to make sure that our immigration system moving forward does meet the needs. >> i'm hearing it sounds like a lot of the things i heard after 9/11 which is that you think really what is broken here when we are talking about this specific case is interagency cooperation.
" of tomorrow will morning at 7:00 eastern on cnn. janet napolitano at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow also on c- span. graham speaks on a decision not to prosecute the as an marathon bomber enemy combatants. >> i understand we will have a moment of silence for the victims in boston. that is appropriate, and the president is right to lead that effort. the families who have lost loved ones, to those who have been injured, our heartbreaks as a nation. to the people of boston, you make us proud by the courage you have shown. to the law enforcement officials and intelligence community, god bless you for your hard work and your bravery. what brings me here today is i have been informed that the obama administration has indicated this suspect in boston will not be treated as an enemy combatants. i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to roll out and in the combat the status for the suspect at this time. i believe such a decision is premature. it is impossible for us to gather the evidence in just a few days to determine whether or not this individual should be held for questioning unde
, there is a gravel road that runs a mile and if janet napolitano came to me and said, steve king, i'm going to offer you $6 million a mile to guard your west road, and i want you to make sure that only -- only 10% of the people that want to go across there get across, and i recognize that 60%, 70%, 80% are crossing. we have border patrol testimony that shows they're interdicting 25% of those who cross the border and that's the ones we do see. when i go down to the border and ask the people that are front lines, boots on the ground people, the most consistent number i get from them is 10%. but even if it's 25%, and even if the peak of the illegal crossings that we had several years ago, as reflected in that fashion that 25%, that means that we were having 11,000 a night go across our southern border, four million illegal crossings a year, maybe that's only down to two million now. but i suspect it's more than that. but in any case, the $6 million a mile, plus what we've added since the last time i calculated here, plus this $4.5 billion that they would add takes us up to at least $8.25 million a mile
on immigration legislation. as we mentioned, the department of homeland security secretary janet napolitano was slated to testify but we do not expect to see her now, however, the hearing on immigration will proceed >> [inaudible conversations] >> the committee could come to order please. i apologize for the d. as you know, there is a great deal going on in massachusetts. i hope everybody can well understand why the secretary napolitano will not be here. we will reschedule her. i hope she won't mind me mentioning, but i totally agree in the way that law enforcement has responded. i am distressed of an officer being killed and critically wounded, just as we are of all the people who were injured or killed from the marathon. it should have been a joyous, joyous occasion, as most marathons are, prospectives and participants and otherwise and i want to thank dr. holtz-eakin and mr. cassano for being here and we'll go forward. the bipartisan proposal we have established to citizen -- citizenship, the 11 million undocumented immigrants in this country, it addresses the current immigration system,
and the homeland security department, janet napolitano are going to face a lot of questions about what they knew and what they didn't know. and we should say in fairness to them, obviously, this was said in the bush administration when i was here and should be said now, which is that for the department of homeland security still a relatively new federal agency post 9/11 as you noted, they have to be right 100% of the time. the terrorists only have to be right once. and all of a sudden we have horrific scene. so, there are a lot of terror attacks that thwarted in the bush administration that have been thwarted in this administration. but now this one was not. why not is going to be a big question. >> bill: yeah. particularly when the funerals of the children, one confirmed dead 8-year-old girl, but there are, we understand, 8 other children that have been injured or in the hospital. all right. we appreciate it, ed. we'll talk with you again tomorrow. >> thanks, bill. >> bill: we have fox news anchor bill hemmer up in boston now. you just got up there, hemmer? >> sure did. just about two hours ago
secretary, janet napolitano. he will continue to get updates throughout the evening. there's not a lot of information on who carried out the attacks this evening. they don't know if it was carried out by someone here on u.s. soil or someone abroad. so, that is really the key question they are looking into. again, president obama is looking to monitor this situation into the evening. lawrence? >> thank you. joining me now with the latest on that investigation, nbc news justice correspondent, pete williams. >> lawrence, good evening. investigators know this attack involved two bombs. what they don't know is whether there were other explosives involved. at least five other packages found on the street were deemed to be suspicious and destroyed by boston police and bomb squad techs. there were many packages to check. people dropped what they were carrying and ran away. we have heard conflicting accounts about whether there were unexploded bombs. some say two other packages were found that contained forms of explosiv explosives, others say there were just the two bombs. that remains unclear
also spoke with janet napolitano. the president vowed that those responsible will be found and held accountable. >>> we still do not know who did this or why. and people shouldn't jump to conclusions before we have all the facts. make no mistake, we'll get to the bottom of this and we'll find out who did this. we'll find out why they did this. any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice. today is a holiday in massachusetts. patriots day. it's a day that celebrates the free and fiercely independent spirit that this great american city of boston has reflected from the earliest days of our nation. and it's a day that draws the world to boston's streets in a spirit of friendly competition. boston is a tough and resilient town and so are the people. i'm confident that they will put together, take care of each other and move forward as one proud city and as they do, the american people will be with them every single step of the way. >> jessica yellin is at the white house. the one thing we did not hear from the president was the word "terror."
by robert muller, the director of the fbi as well as dhs secretary, janet napolitano. he will continue to get updates throughout the evening. but again, there's not a whole lot of information in terms of who actually carried out this attack. some frustration here this evening because they don't know the if this was carried out by someone here on u.s. soil or someone abroad. so, that is really the key question they are looking into. again, president obama is continuing to monitor the situation into the evening. lawrence? >> kristen welker, thank you. joining me now with the latest on that investigation, nbc news justice correspondent, pete williams. >> lawrence, good evening. investigators know for certain that this attack involved two bombs. but what they don't know the is whether there were any other explosives involved. frankly the information is confused tonight. at least five other packages found on the street were deemed to be suspicious and destroyed by boston police and bomb squad techs. there were many packages to check, officials say because after the explosions people dropped
dhs secretary janet napolitano and he will continue to get updates throughout the evening. again, there's not a whole lot of information in terms of who actually carried out the acts of frustration this evening because they don't know if this was carried out by someone here on u.s. soil or someone abroad. so that is really the key question they are looking into. again, president obama continuing to monitor the situation into the evening, lawrence. >> kristen welker, thank you. joining me now nbc news justice correspondent pete williams. >> lawrence, good evening. investigators know for certain that this attack involved two bombs, but what they don't know is whether there were any other explosives involved. and frankly, the information on this is confused tonight. at least five other packages found on the street were deemed to be suspicious, and were destroyed by boston police and bomb squad techs. and there were many packages to check, officials say, because after the explosions, people simply dropped what they were carrying and ran away. we have heard, quite frankly, conflicting
this as an act of terror and as if for an emphasis, we heard now within the last hour or so from janet napolitano and eric holder, the attorney general, both saying this is being treated as an act of terror. the white house wants to make it clear how seriously they take this. >> peter alexander, thanks so much. >> i want to bring in tom busey, president of usa sports media group. he ran the marathon and crossed the finish line moments before the first explosion. if you would, take us back to that scene. you've just finished. you're in this sort of post marathon haze and then what? >> sure. it was the best and the worst, right? an absolutely beautiful day gone tragic. crossing the finish line a couple minutes before the explosion was euphoric, followed by they are or four minutes later, the first of two bombs going off. we were walking around. those who just finished in a days. after 26.5 miles, you're kind of out of it. you're empty. the first bomb took us all a bit by surprise and i think everybody sort of looked around and thought to themselves, what has just happen here? maybe there was the po
: the secretary of homeland security, janet napolitano, said there's no evidence of a wider plot, but extra security measures will stay in effect for now. that was apparent across the country with a heightened state of vigilance. k-9 teams were out in force at los angeles international airport, a terminal was evacuated at new york's laguardia airport because of a suspicious package. and a plane turned back to the gate at boston's logan international airport because a bag wasn't screened properly. >> brown: this afternoon, the white house confirmed the president will attend a memorial for the victims in boston on thursday. joining us from boston now is david boeri, senior reporter for wbur public radio. david, what if anything can you add to where the investigation stands now? what leads might be being followed? >> we have a 12 acre crime scene here so they're still poring through that scene. there's going to be problems tonight because we're expecting rain and it is windy as well so some of those fragments are moving and blowing out. but they are working this scene as intensively, they say,
. janet napolitano said this is not part of a broader blot. then the ricin issue emerged. we can't say that definitively at this hour, can we? >> well, we don't know what we don't know. and i don't think anybody in this investigation truly noise everything yet. i think they know what type of explosive, they know what type of device, they know what type of detonation device. they have a good indication that it is somebody that lives locally. the fbi releasing that they want citizens that heard any kind of explosion, no matter how small, to call in. and i think this is an indicator that they believed there was a homemade explosive content to the bomb and they were testing the formula and certainly it also means that somebody lives in the area at least prior to them planting the bombs. >> what do you make of, how important will the remains that we showed the pictures of earlier of this crock pat or pressure cooker bomb that was made and the remains of that, how important is that going to be to the investigation? and what do you know about these pressure cooker bombs? >> well, i don't know
there. well, around the nation, police are still on high alert, but secretary of homeland security janet napolitano said there's no evidence that the bombings in boston are connected to any type of broader terrorist plot. steve handelsman is in the nation's capital where an annual event like the boston marathon that's coming up was not coming up. >> reporter: right, jess, thanks, good evening. i think a lot of people here in the nation's capital and a lot visit here like a lot visited in boston this week had the attitude of that young runner from chico, california. can't let them win. and so there were people on the streets here. now boston has dominated in a way what lawmakers are talking about on capitol hill, but lawmakers and ordinary life here in the nation's capital has gone on. in washington, the annual emancipation day parade went off safely. lots of cops everywhere. >> good to see a good police presence. >> reporter: trash cans were tipped over and secured. >> i feel pretty safe. i do. >> reporter: big issues like gun control are out of the spotlight. gabby giffords understands.
senate coverage here on c-span2. >>> also today janet napolitano will testify on capitol hill on the president's tbowrt homeland security budget request including $39 million of discretionary spending which is a decrease from 2012. she's expected to talk about the boston marathon bombings, disaster relief, and boarder security. you can see it on c-span three. >>> coming up next remarking in iceland's president olafur grimsson. he spoke earlier this beak at the national press club in washington, d.c. the remarks about an hour. >> our guest today, icelandic president olafur grimsson said we live in an ice dependent world. perhaps it comes as no surprise, the that president the leader of a country with ice in the name would like the world to take notice of the glacier and sea ice that dominate the arctic neighborhood. but the british educate political scientist elected july 30th to a record fifth term as ice lands' president as a global worry. the north pole's shrinking icecap is breaking havoc on the weather system, and ecology. the -- disappearance of arctic is diminishing sea
? >> the answer, which homeland security secretary janet napolitano conceded is no. underlying the according tos used by opponents of gun safety issues is the implied position that 30,000 people are going to die each year by guns and that's the way it has to be. it's the price of freedom. and it is absolutely true that some number of horrible events is, in fact, the price of freedom. you cannot have total security without the country becoming a police state. we expose ourselves to risk by getting out of the house in the morning, getting in a car, going into a public space, through there is a bizarre and perverse mismatch in our political culture about what risks are acceptable and what are not, depending on what the implement of violence is or what the origin of the perpetrator is. so, today, the manchin/toomey background check amendment, the gun bill, the watered down compromise failed to pass the senate's agreed upon filibuster of 60. keep in mind, it got 54 votes, four more allowed than if it was an actual up or down vote. it was fill bustered. >> the gun lobby and its allies willfully lied a
, the secretary of homeland security, janet napolitano, the vice president was also in there as well as his national security team and his chief of staff and deputy chief of staff here in the white house. no indication whether they will come out here with him. so far only the president is scheduled to be here. there he is. >> good morning, everybody. i've just been briefed by my national security team, including fbi director mueller, attorney general holder, secretary napolitano and my counterterrorism and homeland security adviser lisa monaco on the attacks in boston. we continue to mobilize and deploy all appropriate law enforcement resources to protect our citizens and investigate and to respond to this attack. obviously our first thoughts this morning are with the victims, their families and the city of boston. we know that twoook theives of others, including an 8-year-old boy. this was a heinous and cowardly act, and given what we now know about what took place, the fbi is investigating it as an act of terrorism. anytime bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terr
, on the investigative side, i know that janet napolitano testified this morning and play a little bit of her caution to everyone. >> the investigation is proceeding apace and it just, you know, this is not an ncis episode. sometimes you have to take time to properly you know, put the chain together to identify the perpetrators. >> and pete said something that you as an experienced justice and homeland security correspondent know all too well. the pieces are being put together. tell us where we stand today. >> they're moving on several tracks, andrea. the photo track may be among the most promising. the government believes it has identified two people it wants to find, identify, find and interview. that have been seen acting suspiciously, carrying backpacks, duffle bags that are heavy. they think the bomb weighed 20 pounds, so they're interested in talking to them. they may or may not show us pictures of that. there was some back and forth on this the last 24 hours, about the advantages and disadvantages and we were thinking we might hear about it this afternoon. we may not. that is still in flux. as
is concerned, homeland secretary janet napolitano told congressional hearing today videos have identified two men who might have had a role in the bombings but she would not characterize them as suspects yet. she also pleaded for patience. >> this is not an ncis episode. sometimes you have to take time to properly put the chain together to identify the perpetrators, but everyone's committed to seeing that that gets done in the right way. >> nbc news correspondent pete williams has an update. what are you hearing regarding this video? >> video and still pictures is my understanding, tamron. >> yeah. >> we may see them today, we may not. this is kind of a back-and-forth thing. it seems, i guess, likely at this point that we will. and it should be clear if they do show these pictures today, these are the people they're most interested in talking to. you know, i don't think anyone at this point is saying the fbi has quote/unquote, found the bombers. they see the faces but they don't know who they are and if they show them publicly, they're going to be asking for public help to identify them so th
in those bombs. nonetheless, though, homeland security secretary janet napolitano testifying on capitol hill today, cautioned us all not to get ahead of ourselves. >> the investigation is proceeding apace, and it just, you know, this is not an "ncis" episode. sometimes you have to take time to properly, you know, put the chain together to identify the perpetrators. >> reporter: clearly, though, they've made a lot of progress. this city is trying to make a lot of progress in healing itself, healing our city was the theme of all of the may recall events today. president and mrs. obama both here today. the president meeting with volunteers, president and mrs. obama meeting with families of victim -- family of victim krystle campbell and also of people who survived the blast. earlier at the cathedral of the holy cross, an interfaith service that featured clergy from various faiths, as well as cardinal sean o'malley, and politicians as well. the mayor of boston, the governor of massachusetts, and the president, urging this city to, as he said, reclaim its grace. michelle? >> thank you so muc

and homeland security secretary janet napolitano also talked about this investigation and urged everyone to be patient. >> the investigation is proceeding apace, and it just, you know, this is not an "ncis" episode. sometimes you have to take time to properly put the chain together to identify the perpetrators. >> but everyone is clearly impatient, clearly, especially after the news blackout, essentially, of the last couple of days, with a lot of anonymous or anonymously sourced information, flowing into the news vacuum. we will get more official information on the record from law enforcement officials led by the fbi, at the top of the hour, cnbc will bring it to you live. michelle, bill? >> yep, just 40 minutes away, scott. thank you. >>> all right, on the heels of the terror out of boston and the terrifying and deadly explosion in texas. >> yeah, that horrific fire at that fertilizer plant north of waco injured more than 160 people, left several dead. we'll go live to the scene for the latest developments when we come back. carfirmation. only hertz gives you a carfirmation. hey, this i

, after fort hood, for example, after the underwear bomber, after that terrorist attack janet napolitano comes out and says lone actor, lone actor, no connections to international terrorism. there's no way they know that and there's a lot of evidence that points in the opposite direction. they seem very hesitant to assert or even frankly investigate any ties to islamic jihad. they don't want to talk about islamic jihad. and when you face the fact that that is, you know, the world that we live in, there is a war underway, we are, frankly, being attacked by islamic jihadist, when you have a government that instead wants to immediately put everybody into the criminal justice system and stop asking questions, i think it raises a real concern. >> liz, thank you. i agree, he's probably going to get convict the. when you commit a crime on tape you usually get convicted. thank you. >> thank you. >> on the topic of surveillance video, that played a key role in tracking down the accused bombers. so i have a question. are you in favor of saturating cities with surveillance cameras? go to gretawire.
security secretary janet napolitano will testify where yesterday, to say the least, tempers were high. >> few ways to improve the bill, off an amendment when we start mark-up in may and let's vote on it. i say that particularly to those who were pointing to what happened, the terrible tragedy in boston, as a, i would say, excuse for not doing a bill or delaying it many months or years. >> i never said that! >> i didn't say you -- >> i never said that! >> i didn't say did you, sir. >> i didn't say anything about -- >> i didn't interrupt you, mr. grassley. >> mr. chairman within don't appreciate demeaning the witnesses that come here. >> let me finish. >> man! a chuck schumer and a chuck grassley going after each other hurts this chuck. anyway, a divide is emerging in the republican party between those making it known they'll get behind the senate bill and those using boston as an excuse to kill or delay it in chicago. maybe the most important to speak out in favor of this deal, paul ryan, made it clear he is on the immigration reform train. >> we have a broken immigration system and if
progress in the wake of the boston bombings. but at a senate hearing, janet napolitano said people here illegally might come forward for a chance at citizenship, making immigration control more effective. >> the existing bill builds on that and one of the important things, the existing bill does, quite frankly from a law enforcement perspective is bringing all of the people out of the shadows who are currently in the shadows. >> sreenivasan: the brothers who allegedly carried out the boston bombings came to the u.s. from chechnya about ten years ago and received asylum. the murder trial of an abortion provider in philadelphia took a sudden turn today. a state court judge dismissed charges that dr. kermit gosnell murdered three babies during late-term abortions. prosecutors alleged that he killed them after they were born alive. gosnell still faces charges he murdered four other babies, as well as a patient who died after an abortion. in iraq, at least 56 people died after government forces raided a sunni protest camp before dawn. the raid sparked fierce fighting in hawija, about 160 mil

of homeland security, janet napolitano just a few moments ago. what more have you learned about this attack? >> actually a few hours ago. but what we have learned is that they haven't been able to distinguish whether it is an international or domestic terrorist, only that there is a treasure trove of potential evidence in videos and witness statements and a large part of our focus at the federal level working with state and local officials is to try and provide the assets necessary to accelerate the viewing of the videos to bring in experts that might be able to determine information from those videos. the videos remain one of the center points of the investigation. there are still videos flooding in from individuals, because iphones and other video equipment. and that's all welcomed. but there is a mountain of this information to go through and it does present a very encouraging avenue, given the magnitude of the video and the camera work that was done there in terms of what happened at that scene. so that remains one of the priorities right now. >> congressman, you used to be a district a
